Display glass seems able to withstand LCD panel cyclicality thanks to increasing screen sizes and, even more importantly, ongoing moderation in ASP declines. Optical Comms growth remains strong, driven by US FTTH, with GLW “sold out,” and Gorilla Glass should keep re-accelerating as new iPhones now double their content to front AND back. We think GLW showed the strengths of investing in applied R&D, with sizeable long- term TAM expansion opportunities headlined by Automotive Gorilla Glass and its new pharmaceutical Valor Glass, where we received an impassioned deep-dive from CEO, Wendell Weeks.””
